Removing a stain. I have used the following methods successfully:

Step 1
2 parts hydrogen peroxide and 1 part blue Dawn. Scrub gently with brush. Spray with distilled water and blot with clean white rag.

Step 2
Use Soft-Scrub without bleach. This removed a cherry/vomit stain which occurred when our then 4-year old gorged herself on cherries. We were sure we would have to replace the carpet until we used this. We enjoyed the carpet for many more stain-free years.

Pour clean hot water over the stain then cover with a white towel, iron the towel over the stained area and then move the towel each time it has abdorbed any of the stain. Once fairly dry, repeat as necessary. This takes time but it does work. Using a white towel enables you to check if the stain is actually coming out.

Would it matter which vinegar to use??? I have both white and apple cider.

First try to blot as much red kool aid as possible with a paper towel. Then use some warm water and mild dishwasher detergent and scrub with a cloth in the stain only. If this method does not work, use 2 cups water and 1 cup of white vinegar and try scrubbing the stain.
